    mosma's Note:

    This is the best and easiest French Onion Soup. I use mozzarella cheese sometimes instead of swiss. I also use beef bouillon mixed with water if I have no broth on hand.

      I love this recipe.This is the best French Onion soup I have ever made. My only changes were a dash of paprika while the onions were cooking for color . My white wine was a pinot gres and I used provolone cheese and fresh grated Parmesan. Don't hesitate to try this one. It is VERY VERY good.

      This is a yummy soup! Very flavorful and very easy to make! I used swiss cheese with this because that's my favorite. I will make again!

      As you said... Spectacular! This is a simple and wonderful soup. We very much enjoyed it. We each had 2 bowls and I used Swiss cheese on the first one and Mozzarella on the 2nd one. I decided that I liked the mozzarella better, but that's just personal preference. Thanks mosma for posting this delicious soup.
